Description

These heating mat for plants and polytunnels are delivered ready to use. Its thermostat makes temperature control a breeze.

The heating mats are designed to produce a maximum soil temperature of 35 ° C. This plant heating mat increases your success when propagating seeds and cuttings. The produced heat is sent directly to where it is needed: into the ground, near the plant root.

Promises “warm feet” during propagation

In the germination and rooting of cuttings and young plants, the temperature in the root area is a crucial factor for your success in breeding. A heating mat ensures optimal conditions here. The ambient temperature can be well below the ground temperature without damaging the plants. This saves heating power in the polytunnel and enables cultivation even in cooler rooms.

Gardeners like to say that seedlings and cuttings like “warm feet”. This means that roots need higher temperatures to grow and thrive – this, of course, differs depending on the plant variety and environment. Tomatoes germinate best between 20 ° and 25 ° C, while chilli peppers prefer 25 ° to 28 ° C.

Even when growing in cold houses at 0 degrees Celsius, the right soil temperature can enable the cultivation of early crops such as lettuce and kohlrabi. Since most plant seeds need a warm and humid climate to germinate, you should cover the pots or bowls with foil or use a miniature greenhouse.
